What are terms and conditions: selling goods and services to another business and when do you need them?

This is a straightforward terms and conditions for the sale of goods and services, made between 2 businesses. If you want terms and conditions for the sale of only goods to another business, or terms and conditions for the supply of only services to another business, you’ll need our separate templates.

If you’re looking for terms and conditions that are suitable for sale of goods and/or services to consumers, you’ll need our consumer-facing terms and conditions templates.

Our terms and conditions are drafted as your standard trading terms and conditions – they do not require either party to sign them (and therefore can help to avoid any delays whilst you wait for your customer to sign them!).

They work well in situations where you are typically supplying relatively low value, homogeneous goods and/or services, perhaps at irregular time-frames or in irregular quantities, but you do not need your key commercial terms to vary for each transaction, e.g. the goods and services are pretty fixed in provision, and pricing and delivery arrangements probably don’t vary/invite negotiation and the overall trading relationship between the parties is not especially complex.

The goods and services might also expire relatively fast and not require material maintenance, follow-up or carry significant liability or risk.

Some businesses choose to adopt a more substantive agreement to supply goods and services, which does require both parties to sign. (These tend to be for situations where substantial and (often) higher value supply terms are being agreed and the parties are negotiating these provisions on a more individually tailored basis to cover bespoke objectives and often higher risk and a more involved relationship between the parties.)
